Module 1: Effective searching
The first step in a research project is to look for sources to use in your writing. In Module 1, you'll learn techniques for successful database searching. First, you'll discover how to navigate and select from the resources available on your library's website. Next, you’ll be introduced to search strategies that return the most useful results. The final part of this module shows you how to manage information overload. It will help you find the sources you need for any given assignment.
To get started, choose “Lesson 1” from the navigation bar on your left. Each lesson has two components—Watch and Practice. After watching the video, practice what you’ve learned before proceeding to the next lesson. After you complete all three lessons in this module, choose “Assessment - Module 1" from the navigation bar on the left. Have fun!
